RECERLA ANAPOTA NXYAI?U.

As soon as the Revanta among* the horsemen (Anapota)
mounts his charger, the minds of mighty Icings are perturbed ;
the Karnata troops are thrown into confusion by the fierce blows
of his sword ; the whole of the Telugu kingdom is stricken with
panic on hearing the twang of the bow string of this Partha in
battle ; the king of the Oddes (i.e. the Gajapati) is startled by
the thrust of the lance of this fearless warrior ; O ! glorious
Eaya Ravu Anapota, the Sultan and the kings (his allies),
being unable to bear the impact of your attack, have sustained
a disgraceful defeat outside the fort of Sindhur.

* This famine is also noticed by Ferishta. and other Mussalman historians. (See
Briggs' Ferishta IT, p. 349.)

ed from the Kadambas.
